RPS Omnibus: Mar 30th – April 5th

It's the Omnispacebus! Space week has been and gone, but if you missed even a single syllable of our vaguely thematic wittering about stars and planets and spaceships and jetpack brontosauruses and dear Christ so much Eve, here's where to catch up. Oh, worth quickly mentioning a site-tech snafu, as folk keep mailing us about it - we are aware that the RSS feed is…

Eidos Montreal To Make Thief 4?

Okay, this is an interesting one. A couple of days ago Eidos Montreal lobbed up a notice they were now recruiting staff to work on their new game. To quote the statement from their site: "Eidos-Montréal is proud to announce the recruitment for our 2nd “AAA” project. … A hint! The title begins with the letter “ T”." Which doesn't mean much until you notice…

Eurogamer: Wrath of Kane Review

I've just reviewed C&C3's add-on for Eurogamer. It's here. It it I start by saying things like this: By now, the wives of the assorted Command and Conquer head honchos have got to be getting a little suspicious. "So, who have you hired for that new job in the office?" they'll ask. "Oh, no-one special. Just the best candidate," says the commander. "Her references were…

Blacksmiths Create WoW Epic Armour

This interview with a German blacksmith over on the official World Of Warcraft site explains how his team got into making full, wearable sets of fantasy armour, including some based on WoW's epic armour sets. In the post you show us the tier 2 set for the Paladin. How long did you work on it until it finally matched your vision completely, and what was…

Something Else To Fear

A new Project Origin trailer appears, in what appears to be a series attempting to put us off the game as much as possible. This time with 34 seconds of company logos! We'd show you far more of ourselves, Gametrailers. More floating down dingy corridors, more sudden cuts to a monster, and then some game footage that could come from any shooter ever. (Although Mr…

Kung-fu Master Meets Sex Offenders Register

When Walker found this, he lobbed it straight at me: "Your Sort of Thing", apparently. This is him implying I'm a disturbed onaninst who fruitfully ejaculates at the images of underage frogs in lingerie. Which is ludicrous - all the frogs are of legal age. Anyway, With its instruction video appearing just before the 1st, this existed in a "April Fools... or just Japanese Software…

Damnation: Exclusive Artwork, Compo & Chat!

You may remember a couple of weeks back we were overwhelmed by the depths of enthusiasm in a press release for Codemasters' Damnation. It seems our mocking was taken in the best of humour, and Codies got in touch with us offering a chance to speak to the man responsible, PR Man Sam Cordier. "Only if you give us some exclusive assets and a compo…

DICE: PC Dying? Crazy!

While you can bathe in the delights of our very own (sort of) interview with DICE, regarding the forthcoming Battlefield Heroes, Gamasutra have one of their very own, and it reveals some interesting commentary about the PC from EA. There's a sensible position put across by senior producer Ben Cousins, referencing Raph Koster's belief that "consoles are a niche market." "If you look at the…

James Salt Battlefield Heroes Interview

[Old Comrade-In-State-(Ask Your Posturing Games Forumite Dad, kids)-Arms Lazarii became a games journalist. And now he's stopped being a games journalist. Now, as he runs off and does something which will probably earn proper money, he finds that he's an interview got left which he did with James Salt, Lead Designer of Battlefield Heroes. He lobs it at us. We print it. Win! In it…

Spectromancer Multiplayer Beta

Those who remember the ancient days of February will recall me blogging about Spectromancer, the card-game-esque wizard-wargame, from the makers of Magic: The Gathering and Astral Tournament. I probably mentioned that while the Single-Player was fun, the multipliplayer Beta was forthcoming. Well, now it's forthcome. I have played one game, which I won, so this means this must be the greatest game the world has…

Your Monthly Spam Round-Up

Here's something enormously stupid that first appeared in PC Format. It's reviews of spam! Why? Because someone asked me to write some reviews of spam. So I jumped into the spam folder and picked out the first few that grabbed me. I recommend doing this now and again - take a look, and enjoy the astonishing nonsense that gets sent out every day. but loved…

EUO: Free Online Adventureosity

I'll be getting into the Space Week! theme soon, but I've been playing a load of distinctly un-Space Week! indie games over the weekend which I want to blog about. The Developer of EUO dropped me a line to tell that, as of April 5th, he's been running his free Online RPG for Five (Count 'em!) years and has all manner of cheery events like…
